I like trees. I like what they contribute to me and to this planet. I like that they are home to so many creatures. When they eventually die, they rot their nutrients into the ground enhancing and making fertile a womb for even newer growth. I like how they entangle themselves into each other so that they remind me of how a brain grows, sprouting dendrites and attaching here and there in the most random of order.
They purify the air and they are such fun to climb.
They are a part of me and i am a part of them…it saddens me to see them treated callously as if they have no life and are an endless resources for man to exploit. Finally, they are a thing of beauty and as a cluster they form a kind of chapel in the wildwood.
